Bliss Bakery in Chinatown lives up to its name

Earth Hour Dinner at Thomsons

March 29th, 2010 by Julie Van Rosendaal

I love to see corporate entities participating in events like Earth Hour. So if I can show my support by going for a three-course meal made from ingredients sourced within a 150 mile radius, it’s the very least I can do.

At Thomsons, they’re celebrating Earth Hour all week long with a special menu featuring ingredients sourced from within 150 miles of the hotel. (These ingredients and others can be found on their menu year-round; they are regular suppliers, all drawn together to create a single meal for this occasion.) On Saturday March 27, it will be served in the true spirit of Earth Hour, as they offer dinner service by candlelight. The best part: this three-course meal is only $35 - the best deal I’ve seen in ages.

UPDATE: Thomsons has extended their Earth Hour menu until Sunday, April 4, 2022 because of it’s popularity. (more…)
